OOTD - I Long To See The Sunlight In Your Hair

There are songs which suit your current mood and there are one which changes yours to bring to the mood of the song. 'Hello' by Lionel Richie one is the second kind for me. This definitely one of my most favorite song.

In Love With Strong and Fresh Smell of The Body Shop Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream For All Skin Types (Review)

Few days back TBS had 20% on 3 products. I picked the 2 products I had in mind and started searching for the 3rd products. As I almost tried everything, I was looking for something new. I never go near the rack that stores those hand creams in tin tubes because I am very afraid that they might cut and leak. But then I suddenly saw the green tube. The name Absinthe was real tempting. I was aware of the collection but was not expecting it to come to India this soon. Luckily even this was on offer and so, I grabbed it.

Yoko Does Magic To Bring Alive The Disney Princess Story

Let's start with a lee-tel game to break the ice. 

Who watched Disney cartoons while growing up? 

Now, tell me how many times you dream of having those beautiful tresses like those Disney Princesses Jasmine, Ariel, Pocahontas, Alice and Rapunzel? (Well, I thought Rapunzel's ones were just too much high maintenance for me and I can skip that. But, when I watched Tangled a year back, I started to envy her again. )

Disney surely gave the little girls some pretty unrealistic expectations about hair. But, are they really unrealistic? Let's say, is the dream of perfect straight hair unrealistic? I am not even asking this time who want to have perfect straight hair because I know the answer. EVERYBODY. (If you don't then I am sure you are born with it and have no idea what ordeals a girl with head full of curly hair go though in her life.)

Crackle Nail Polish With Glitter - Deborah Milano Pret A Porter Crackling 05 Swatch

This is the 3rd of the Crackles I got from Deborah Milano. I loved how unique it is. Not everyday you encounter a crackle with glitter. Actually, this is the first time I encountered ANY crackle with GLITTER in it.

DIY Lip Scrub Like Lush Sweet Lips

Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Activate Bamboo Charcoal 6 in 1 Face Pack Review

I am sucker for weird color face packs. But, never a fan of Aroma Magic. Last year around November,  I say the print ads of these, I went like - Dil Jumping Japak Jumping Jumping. Most irritating song ever..what say u? I had to get this. They were unavailable everywhere and many were not even aware of them. And  somehow, I finally got Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Activate Bamboo Charcoal 6 in 1 Face Pack

Spotted Inglot Hawaiian Bar or The Aqua Blue Collection in India?

Inglot is surely my new found love right after I discovered their refill palette.  You can read about the great discovery here.

Now that I am stalking all their blogs and FB pages, I discovered many cool collections they have. But I have never spotted them in India. The two collections that are taking away my sleep are Hawaiian Bar Collection or The Aqua Blue Collection. And they were launched last year!

Moi in Cosmopolitian India April 2013 - Tailor Made your Own Summer Body Scrub

As some of you might be aware that I was featured in the Fast Glam section of Cosmopolitan India April 2013 Edition. If not then jump to page 84 of your copy. And who do not have a copy can just see it here.

It all started when Priyam from Cosmo India mailed me on 12th March asking me if I can do a DIY beauty post. I could not believe my eyes when I read the mail. When I was back to Earth, I replied her saying I can do it. Luckily I was thinking of doing a summer body scrubs, toning face packs and lips scrub post for the blog. I told her my idea and she told me to ahead with body scrub.

[EDIT - Read about the Lips Scrub - DIY Lips Scrub]

But she mentioned it clearly- “Just please ensure your packaging is fabulous, as we'll be giving you a half page in the magazine, so pictures need to be super cute”.

As many of you know, I have a very demanding 5 days job and so, I click pictures only on weekends. So, I decided to take a leave on 13th March. But cute pics? Cute pic needs cute things? And its mid week! How will I buy even if I wish to? And then it came to my mind – it’s a DIY so, I should DIY!

I went to kitchen and start searching for whatever that could help. The glass container had cheese spread, the pink and yellow spoons came when some floral containers, the red spoon was free with some red bowl I got last year from 99 Store, the small tubs were purchased long time back to keep daily skincare products in my office bag. I BTW use contact lens cases to keep skincare because they are more sturdy.

To decorate? The elastic was brought a year back – a dozen for 39 INR from NewU shop. The green and blue strip of paper meant to write down the ingredients in case you gift it was from the tag of Westside. LOL.

I had to use something more in yellow because I know they use the black yellow background, so I used the yellow spoon from a sugar free powder.

NYX Makeup Remover And Cleansing Oil In One with Green Tea Extract Review with Test

I always wanted to try a cleansing oil but there are hardly any options here. On top of my list was definitely MAC Cleanse Off Oil but the price tag of 1500 INR for just 150 ml was not something I am ready for yet. This NYX one is sold for 1300 INR for 100ml...yup MORE than MAC. I had dreams of getting something from Sephora but nothing seemed great. But on Women's Day Healthkart had an offer of flat 50% off on NYX products and then I decided - let's give a try to NYX Makeup Remover And Cleansing Oil. 

Let's see how it fared
